The Doctor of Pharmacy is a four-year degree program that prepares students to provide skilled, ethical, and compassionate patient care as pharmacists.
The three tiered Pharmacy Experience Program (IPPE-P1, IPPE-P2, and IPPE-P3) allows the student to apply didactic information in dynamic real patient care situation. As the student progresses through the program, the IPPE is designed to offer more challenges to the student based on objectives and competencies. As the IPPE progresses, students become more involved in pharmaceutical care and in the operation of the pharmacy.
The curriculum is designed to ensure competency in:
- Patient-centered Care
- Population-based Care
- Resource Management
- Professional Behavior and Essential Skills
